Kitchen makeover: the ‘before’ shot

This unappealing assemblage of  MDF, plywood, pinkish floor tiles and mismanaged clutter is – or rather, was – the Usual Shop’s kitchen. It’s a dark and dismal tunnel-like galley, the cupboards broken and collapsed inside, the drawers off their runners and the oven erratic. We are to eventually eradicate the final traces of the previous owners of the house – though we continue to uncover their DIY disasters – and remake and remodel. And much of the new look will be in the Usual Shop’s usual manner: we’ve already sourced the sink from a neighbour’s garden, a dresser from a Crowborough junk shop, and a workbench unit from a mate’s garage. (That old washing machine‘s still going, and will be staying; might have to think creatively about a replacement fridge-freezer, though). Will it all come together? I’ll keep you posted.
